Youth Opportunities

Our club joins with others on providing opportunities for young people through Kids Out, the Rotary Youth Leadership Programme, and encouraging public speaking and debating skills through the Youth Speaks programme between schools.

Every year Rotary helps kids from disadvantaged backgrounds to have a great day out

This committee organises the Club in its Youth programme, principally the Kids Out event in the summer with other clubs in the Region. This is always a fun and rewarding group of events.  Our club supports two special local schools. 

During the winter/spring our  priority is the Youth Speaks Programme, an opportunity for secondary school  to present  issues of their own choosing in competition with each other.  These local heats lead to regional and then national heats. 

2 students from Riddlesdown Collegiatehave been nominated for the Rotary Youth Leadership programme ( a outdoor learning event) at Dorking during the Easter holiday.
